Charges filed in murder of popular Cicero pizzeria owner

A Chicago man has been arrested and charged with the death of a popular pizzeria owner in Cicero.

Matthew A. Brown-Turner, 25,  is charged with killing  Giovanni Donancricchia early  Thursday morning.

Investigators say Brown-Turner entered Albano’s Pizza through a back door, just after the restaurant closed.

He threatened Giovanni’s wife, Angelea, with a gun but was confronted by Giovanni.  His wife fled, but Giovanni was shot once in the chest and died.
Police say the shooting was caught on a security camera and Brown-Turner can be seen with a gun.

He is charged with three counts of murder and one count of attempted armed robbery.
Brown-Turner is due in bond court this morning.

    Hang this guy by his thumbs in the middle of the street and allow people to throw anything they want at the guy, call him anything they want, hit him with anything they can find. I don't want they guy killed; he needs to physically suffer for an extended period of time.

    Back in the day everyone was down on Cicero and all they wanted was to keep the trash out of thier town. Again a great white person that cared for people and worked hard was KILLED by this animal of a person. We will hear about a good boy and all that trash and we can bet that mom and family are all on taxpayer funded programs. Way to go, keep killing the good people and GIVE the animals and trash handouts. My deepest feeling go to the victims family and I can only say We are SORRY!

    Death penalty would be suitable.
